Oliver's Cafe

Chef Oliver Valenzuela has darkened the doors of many historic kitchens in his 30 years as a chef, from New York's Waldorf Astoria and the New Orleans Hilton to the Palmer House in Chicago. But when it comes down to it, no kitchen compares to his latest one: his own. He and his wife Marcy now man the cutting boards at their brainchild, Oliver's Cafe, where they dream up, test, and serve new American recipes such as the house's cinnamon-braised beef tenderloin.

Their specialties are grilled meats and seafood. They artfully plate dishes such as the seared jumbo scallops served in a salsify leek ragout, roasted red pepper sauce, and a port wine glaze. But their flare for culinary whimsy doesn't stop at the entrees. Chef Oliver also crafts signature desserts such as the cinnamon apple, pineapple, and raisin egg roll served with a scoop of ice cream and tart berries as well as classics such as fudgy brownies. The one thing the couple leaves well enough alone is drinks, which is why they allow customers to bring in BYOB bottles of their favorite wines or free-range well water.
